golden bronze and red

For miles and miles of highway, it was one breathtaking moment after another. Thankfully I can’t stop on a major super highway, too many cars, besides, I wouldn’t know which length of highway to stop and gape at. As I got closer to Montreal, there was less of the deeper colours, but the change was evident. Soon the West Island will be showing glorious colours against the blue of the skies and the reflection off the waterways.

I even made it back to the Ottawa area, in time to have my car tended to. Somewhere between Hawksbury and Alfred my light went on, (dash) I had a tire loosing air. Tomorrow is another busy day, I was encouraged to get my tire fixed, or I could be without a car for tomorrow. Couldn’t have that, now could I.

Face challenging Situations with Positive Determination (after driving to Montreal and back, it was not my first thought to get back in my car and get my tire attended to) By creatively finding solutions, you will feel the joy in tackling any situation.

Tomorrow, I will be enormously happy that I had my car tended to, and will have a positive start to my day.

Success

Have you ever wanted to roam free in the wilds of your country, province, or state? Some of us dare to follow our dreams, and take to the woodlands despite physical limitations, if there is a will, there is a way.

Success doesn’t just happen. It is not just by coincidence that things go well. The results are based on the hard work you have put in up until that moment. Remember to be thankful and use your current success to reach the next level.

We are blessed to live in a country where there an abundance of natural woodlands for us to enjoy. Please, let us dedicate ourselves to taking care of our home lands and environments world wide.

Rain on the 417

October 19_004

Bom Dia, Good Morning,  For those of you who do not live in the area, the 417 is the highway that takes one from Ottawa, to Montreal. It is a divided highway, two lanes going east, and two lanes going west .  The landscape between here and Montreal yesterday was beyond spectacular.

oct 31_015

The weather forecast was rain and more rain.  Ottawa was predicted to have heavy rains most of the day.  Montreal less so.  When we left, we were not expecting a great sun-filled or colourful day.  There was no sun, not even a glimmer or hint of sun.  BUT the colours were out of this world.  Brilliant, rich, full of drama, it was often gasping wow moments. It truly was mesmerizing, I couldn’t get enough of it.  Never have I been so enthralled with a rainy, misty foggy day.

oct 31_008

My co-pilot was just as blown away as I was, our conversations were constantly being interrupted with our reaction to the scenery we were driving through.  Sorry no pictures it was raining too hard,  this is an extremely busy, highway.  Suffice to say, it was often surreal. The rain was so heavy that it drenched the barks of the trees, so that they stood out, like  inked ebony sculptures dripping with leaves of wet glistening golds, and often fiery burnished copper would stand out majestically against a stand of evergreens.

We don’t go out expecting to be presented with endless miles of Natural wonders…. but when it happens, friends, you feel truly blessed.  The ride home was foggy and we had the rush hour traffic for part of it, but the ride to our destination, was gift.  A picture would not do it justice, we had to live it.  Live it we did.  What a day, it was glorious, yeah, really… that great.  Neither one of us expected such a 3D high-definition all out mind-blowing show…but the heavens provided and we reaped the rewards.

Life can be exhausting, but it can also be simply divine, when you least expect it to.

Thursday Doors

IMG_1345Happy Thursday everyone.. Bom dia.

Some doorways have a very open and spacious entrance.  Others are more “this is what you get” and the tenants do their best to make it welcoming.

Then you leave the town and head out into the open country, the sights and sounds are very different.  Yet always there are doors.

I got a tad turned around in my outing yesterday, found myself south when I should have been heading east.  Ah who cared, I was out exploring and best of all, the sights of the fall colours was awesome. Meet my new friends…

He was a brilliant conversationalist, (both males) the blonde was less talkative.  Sigh pleasures come from the most unexpected places. =^_^=

Remember, we are all responsible for the choices we make in life. Take time today to swing your happy into high gear.  Happiness is a powerful positive energy.

PL Calendar day 25…. If you skimp on the paint, your painting will not turn out well.  Live a fulfilled life every day by utilizing things, money, your knowledge or energy to their fullest.

My love and gratitude to you all.

Uma maravilhosa quinta feira a todos…

hwy to alfred7

Stay awhile, simply stand, sit, wait, till the sounds around you, are the only thoughts you hear.  Feel the breeze, take in the smells, you will feel you body start to relax.

hwy to alfred8Walk slowly, for now, in this moment,  you have no other place to be. SAy these words quietly to yourself, right now.  Then close your eyes, take a deep breath, feeling your lungs expand    smile    then slowly open your eyes.   Ahhhh how easy was that.

Go in peace my friend.  You are loved.

*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)

I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind.  I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find.  Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza.  Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza

With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.

Chop Suey Tuesday 18th

First I want to thank you all or your birthday wishes.  I was away for a birthday outing yesterday, when I came back I was overwhelmed by all the messages and good wishes.  Wow, it is going to be super awesome year, I have been jet propelled into a new year.  I am truly blessed, I say thank you each and every day!

oct rust 1 page

While some look for pristine, blank pages, I work at making mine look old, and sometimes, like here, I strive to make rust, and dirty a page, this is my playtime. Yesterday was spent visiting places in west of downtown Montreal, looking for paint, inks, and any and all other artistic, creative tools, to be found,  It was an all day event that I got to share with two like-minded friends, needless to say, it was a lot of fun.

rocks oneoct rust page

Every person is unique, we each and every one of us, expresses ourselves in our own way.  What rocks one person, can be a total turn off to the other, yet when we are on a search and find mission, the enthusiasm of the other person’s excitement when they have found something that has fired up their enthusiasm for their craft, that is catching.  It is smiles all around.

In our travels as we headed back towards Ottawa, I found Catnip who I knew would be perfect for my October Fright journal.

Sharing happiness with friends is a blessing.  What better way to share a birthday celebration, Catnip will always remind me that my 2018 birthday was not only  great.  It lasted for days,  Today I am off on another adventure.

PL Calendar for 18th.  Look forward to what’s ahead

There is no use brooding over the past.  Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
